As Apple hopes that people forget about them slowing down older phones because of "battery issues", HTC and Motorola both happily have piled on and said that they don't slow down their older phones like Apple does. I'm sure Apple is very happy that their competitors are taking a chance to kick them while they're down. The Verge has the full story.

I can't be the only one who thinks this story about Apple throttling devices is far from over?

   HTC and Motorola say they don’t throttle their phones’ processor speeds as their batteries age, something Apple last week acknowledged doing to prevent errors after iPhone owners documented slowdowns. In emails to The Verge, both companies said they do not employ similar practices with their smartphones. An HTC spokesperson said that designing phones to slow down their processor as their battery ages “is not something we do.” A Motorola spokesperson said, “We do not throttle CPU performance based on older batteries.”   The Verge also reached out to Google, Samsung, LG, and Sony for comment on whether their phone processors are throttled in response to aging batteries. A Sony spokesperson said a response would be delayed by the holidays, and a Samsung spokesperson said the company was looking into it.Update: Samsung and LG also confirm they don't slow down their phones either.
